Vogue is a celebrated fashion magazine issued from America since 1892. As such, it’s one of the longest-surviving publications in history. This magazine has been continuously publishing about fashion and clothing for well over 100 years now, with offices on all continents and in many countries across the world.
Meaning and History
Vogue #1 came out in December 1892. Back then, Vogue has been an independent magazine, although it then was bought by several publishing houses, ending up under the roof of Conde Nast. The very word ‘vogue’ means ‘fashion’ in French – culture of France being extremely popular back then.
1892 – today
Vogue emblem has never really been changed, although there were some alterations for specific issues of the magazine across the years.
The generic Vogue logo is just the magazine’s name written in tall uppercase serif with generally thin lines. It was styled to look sophisticated and Gothic, seeing how much of the high fashion was dictated by France back in the day.
Emblem and Symbol
Throughout the years, the emblem featured on the fronts of the magazine issues could be altered. The usual design is completely black, but, depending on the current style, the coloring could be changed to white, yellow or any other color – anything to look presentable.
